Professional Bees will not take non-league opponents lightly
Brentford manager Uwe Rosler says his charges will approach tomorrow's FA Cup first round proper with all the professionalism that comes from being a League One side.
The Bees face a tricky tie at Boreham Wood, who are third in the Blue Square South boasting an unbeaten home record, if they are to progress to the second round.
And Rosler's men will be all the more wary of non league opposition after scraping past Basingstoke at this stage last season only to be beaten at home by Wrexham.
Rosler said: "We are thinking positively about the game, if we start thinking about it as a banana skin then that is negative.
"We have made it absolutely clear to the players we want to go as far as possible.
"We respect our opposition, we are a League One club and we have to present ourselves as a League One club."
He added: "We did wonder whether to give the players an extra day off to recharge the batteries, but have decided the best idea was to have even more training.
"So they they came in on Monday and on Tuesday so we could have the best possible preparation for the game."
